The Kindness School

Posted in 2017, Mind, spirituality with tags , , on August 30, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

 

Most schools have academics as a core and focus on developing character as a secondary motive. However, the Kindness School has a different approach to student learning.

The Puget Sound Community School in Seattle, Washington is a 5-day-a-week school rooted in helping kids from grades 6-10 learn about character and kindness. There are no required academic classes, but classes where students take subjects that interest them.

In addition to academic classes, the students are taking classes that help develop their character within their school and community as a whole. Students get to go into their community to help spread love and kindness to learn how to put their kindness into action.

The Oldest Man In The World 256 Years Before His Death Reveals Its Secret

The Oldest Man In The World 256 Years Breaks The Silence Before His Death And Reveals Its Secret To The World

The New York Times article from 1930 shows that Wu Chung-Chieh, a professor on the Chengdu University, discovered some Imperial Chinese government records from 1827 congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday. He went further with the documents, later congratulating him on his 200th birthday in 1877. A New York Times correspondent in 1928 wrote that several of the old men in Li’s neighborhood stated that when their grandfathers were boys, they knew him and at that time he was a grown man.

Li Ching Yuen in fact began his herbalist career when he was 10. He was gathering herbs in the mountain ranges and he learned of their potency for longevity. For nearly 40 years, he lived on a diet of herbs like wild ginseng, lingzhi, goji berry, gotu kola and he shoo wu and rice wine. In 1749, when he was 71 years old, he is joining the Chinese army as teacher of martial arts. Li was known as a much-loved figure in his community. He was married 23 times and is a father of more than 200 children.

According to the commonly accepted tales that were told in his province, Li was able to read and write since he was a child, and by his 10th birthday had traveled in Shansi, Tibet, Kansu, Annam, Siam and Manchuria in order to gather some herbs. For the first 100 years he continued with his occupation. Then he switched to selling herbs that the others were gathering. He sold wild ginseng, lingzhi, goji berry, he shou wu and gotu kola as well as some other Chinese herbs, and he lived of a diet of these herbs and the rice wine.

He Wasn’t The Only One

As one of the Li’s supporters said, once he had encountered a man who was more than 500 years old, who taught him of the Qigong exercises and dietary recommendations which would help him to extend his lifespan to superhuman proportions. Apart from Qigong and herb-rich diet, what more can we learn from this Master of Longevity?

94-Yo Grandmother Who Has Practiced Martial Arts For 9 Decades Can Still Kick Your Butt

Posted in 2017, Mind with tags , , , on March 24, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

 

Don’t let Zhang Hexian’s age fool you as the 94-year-old has a particular set of skills that make her a nightmare for thugs anywhere. The resident of Ninghai County in east China’s Zhejiang Province has been practicing Chinese martial arts since she was four and through the years she has refined her skills with great diligence and effort to become affectionately known as “Kung Fu Grandma”.

Regarded as “the village of martial arts,” nearly everyone in the village where Zhang lives practices kung fu. As the eighth descendant of her family, Zhang learned kung fu under her father’s instruction at the age of four and has continued to practice throughout nine decades.

“My dad took me to sleep at that time. When we woke up in the morning, we started practicing kung fu in bed. I learned basic martial arts skills such as pushing palm and throwing a punch at an early age,” said Zhang Hexian.

Practicing kung fu has become a daily routine in Zhang’s life. Every morning, Zhang does kung fu exercises without feeling tired. Apparently she is in good health.

“She wakes up very early and does physical exercises every morning. She usually runs around the village for morning exercise,”said Zhang’s son Feng Chuanyin.

Zhang recalled that she once fought against a bully when she was young. The bully was beating his wife when Zhang saw him. To uphold justice, Zhang grabbed his collar, ripped his shirt off and urged him to behave well.

Apart from being a deterrent to hooligans and ruffians, Zhang is also a warm-hearted woman willing to help others, which is one of the secrets of her longevity.

“She always has a good mood with a positive attitude. Helping others is also good for her health,” said Feng.

Mike Horn is completing what may be the most monumental adventure ever. And he’s Instagramming the whole thing.

Posted in 2017, Extreme Weather, Mind with tags , , , on February 22, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

Last April, professional adventurer and world-renowned explorer Mike Horn introduced us to Pole2Pole, a north-to-south-to-north circumnavigation of the entire planet. Horn is now nine months into his two-year, 24,000-mile journey by vehicle, sailboat, kayak, skis, and on foot. His idea is crazy by many measures. So it’s been considered by some to be among the greatest expeditions of all time.

This week, he completed an extremely difficult leg of the trek: A ski-crossing of Antarctica. He successfully navigated to and from the southern Pole of Inaccessibility, the most difficult-to-reach point on the most inhospitable continent.

He did the crossing unsupported, carrying all his gear, alone, on one of the harshest places on the planet. While on foot, his crew sails his vessel to rendezvous points, conducting marine research along the way.

Since his launch in May, Horn has Instagrammed his progress. From Monaco, across the Atlantic Ocean to South Africa, and through Antarctica, his posts offer a rare peek into an amazing journey. You can follow along as his journey turns northward toward an eventual date with the North Pole before turning homeward.

In an era where athletes and thrill-seekers embark on increasingly dangerous and extreme campaigns for acclaim, Horn is a throwback. He is a jack of all trades — sea captain, ice climber, overlander, scientist, and de facto philosopher.

‘Learn To Live In Harmony’

Horn departed Europe to sail along the west coast of Africa. Along the way, he and a team of researchers tagged sharks to track and protect them.

‘Balance Is The Key To Everything In Life’

Much of Horn’s expedition is in a Mercedes overland G-Class. In between long hours on safari through Botswana, he took time for an impromptu dip.

‘Life Is Lived Out Of The Comfort Zone’

An experienced sailor, Horn is in charge of every aspect of his journey, even chasing the wind.

‘We’re In It Now!’

https://www.instagram.com/p/BNKjXuDlqHI/embed/?cr=1&v=7

The Southern Ocean between Cape Horn and Antarctica is treacherous sailing. As noted, “Strong upwelling, westerly winds, cyclonic storms, highest wind speeds on Earth and frequent threat of icebergs make this “the world’s most dangerous ocean.”

‘If The World Is Flat… Then We’re On The Edge’

https://www.instagram.com/p/BNZbB7YFlkD/embed/?cr=1&v=7

“Pangaea is our home, our transportation and our safety net. Our bellies are full and our spirits are high. On the outside it is cold and blue. Beautiful but unforgiving. We are a small dot in a very big ocean and the reality is we don’t have a safety net. ”

‘The end of one road leads to the start of the next!’

https://www.instagram.com/p/BORHSM7FjwI/embed/?cr=1&v=7

To make it across the span of Antarctica in time to meet his ride, Horn had to average 25 miles a day solo and unsupported. He carried everything he needed with him every inch of the way.

‘It Is What It Is’

https://www.instagram.com/p/BQBgxDglMuU/embed/?cr=1&v=7

Some two weeks before he was set to rendezvous with his ship on the opposite coast of Antarctica, Horn’s ship experienced “a big electrical problem” and had to turn back. Rather than panic, Horn recited that simple phrase and accepted what he could not change.

‘Be In Love With Life; You Will Never Be Disappointed’

Horn and crew now begin the long trek north. Now on the water, Pangea will take Horn to Oceania, Australia, and drop him off in Asia. There, he must cross the Kamchatka Peninsula before his next polar trek.
